Atom explains why RM+NS is no better than a tornado in a junkyard:

Darwinism is based on chance, whether Darwinists want to admit it or not.

We get confused because Artifical Selection is a cause, which causes differential reproduction. “Natural Selection” doesn’t cause to differential reproduction; it is the differential reproduction. It doesn’t cause anything further.
...
Anyway, since NS is not a cause of anything, it cannot take a random process and make it non-random. It cannot do anything, since it is an effect only.

The only difference between artificial and natural selection is the selector.  But somehow artificial selection is a cause, while natural selection is only an effect.  Artificial selection, being a cause, can turn a random algorithm into a non-random algorithm, but natural selection can't do anything.

I'm sold.  Where do I sign up for the next ID rally?
